The photo shows the staff of Ast Hardware around 1915; Capt. Joseph P. Ast is second from left. In 1975, this half of the Ast building was demolished to provide an access ramp to the new parking garage, leaving the blank wall of the remaining part of the building. In 1980, a competition was held to choose a mural design for this blank wall. The whimsical result is if a painter painting back the original side wall of the old Ast Hardware building!
